Three Breaths

July 27 - August 7, 2016

Gallery Hours: Tuesday - Saturday 1-7 PM
Sunday 1-5 PM

Reception: Wednesday, July 27, 2016 6-8 PM

Breathing - we take breath unconsciously, with every breath to live, and to confirm the individual presence. The exhibition is titled “Three breaths”.

Three Japanese women present the paintings:

- Masako Sawada, in the motif of plant
- Keiko Hara, focusing on person
- Yoko Saotome, in a geometric and abstract way

It is much appreciated if you could feel their respective “breaths”.

Masako Sawada - The theme is invisible but existing power. In other words, it is breath, light or air. I would like to present such things through the aspect of plant. Silently repeated breaths of the plants. Continuous breathing of life through time. I continue to paint and to learn from small and powerful life of plants.

Keiko Hara - A brief moment of fantasy in usual day. I feel beauty when I sense the breathing which hides a sweet, a little painful, tiny spine. I am walking in pace with those around me on the wide street. In the back of my mind, I however feel a desire to leave this street and walk along a path to a place with fabulously sweet and delightful scent.

Yoko Saotome - Breathing is silent but continuously moving without a stop. My daily behavior and paintings are also moving like breathing. Where to go, for what purpose? I have no idea whether or not I know it. It is delightful and exciting because of uncertainties. “Let’s move for the time being” is my theme.
